Vermont Fish and Wildlife have announced their anterless deer permit application is now available online. Managing antlerless deer is vital to having a good, healthy whitetail deer population. Vermont has collected and analyzed their previous hunting season’s data in order to set the quotas for the upcoming season. This muzzleloader season gives hunters additional opportunites to not only help manage the herd, but to fill the freezer! Make sure you visit the Fish and Wildlife website for more information on the application process.
“Vermont’s muzzleloader season antlerless deer hunting permit applications are now available on Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s website at www.vtfishandwildlife.com. The deadline to apply for a muzzleloader antlerless deer permit is August 24.”
“New this year, hunters applying online for an antlerless permit will do so through the online license sales system as if they were purchasing a license or a tag using their conservation ID number, or CID#. Landowners who do not have a Conservation ID number will need to create a profile through the online license sales system to apply for a landowner application even if they do not intend to purchase a hunting license. Paper applications will also be available at license agents by the end of June.”
“The December 2-10 muzzleloader season would have 24,500 antlerless permits distributed in 18 of Vermont’s 21 Wildlife management Units (WMU), which is estimated to result in 3,608 antlerless deer being taken.
